It’s time to flick the switch.
Switch on the real you.
Healthy, happy, whole
If you’re stuck in chronic illness and stress, you may feel like you are trapped in a prison of a body with no way out. But you are not a prisoner – you are the master jailkeeper with the key – you can be free!
All you need to do is ‘Switch’.
Switch off stress and illness habits (Day 1)
Is your stress response constantly stuck in the ‘on’ position? Do you have an ever-growing list of health problems? Learn to ‘Quick Switch’ your stress response and your thinking patterns, moment to moment, for dramatic improvements to a wide range of symptoms.
Switch deep emotions (Day 2)
‘Deep Switch’ a lifetime’s worth of stuck emotions quickly and easily, without having to reexperience the past or share your big secrets. When you are free of these old hurts, your health can transform even more quickly!
Switch your lifestyle and become the Real You! (Day 3)
Really examine your broader lifestyle, and ‘Switch’ patterns that are no longer right for you. Then journey to the most profound place of all – discover your core identity and ‘Switch’ yourself into a daily experience of being your True Self.
‘The Switch’ is so much more than a chronic illness tool – it’s a LIFE tool. Many of my clients have said that they didn’t just get their life back – they got a better life than they had ever previously imagined.
Clients also really enjoyed attending the course! The latest scientific research into brain neurology, emotions, consciousness and wellbeing will come to life with three characters explaining the concepts (and giving you a good laugh). ‘The Switch’ is full of interactive games and activities – we’ll even play dodgeball! Clients report losing track of time because they are so entranced by ‘The Switch’.

|New applicants will probably get an October course date, though people sometimes get earlier dates from cancellations|
Spaces may come available in these courses if current applicants are assessed as not ready or if people need to cancel.
Cancellations are offered to people who are in the next group after the group that has a cancellation (since they have already been waiting the longest) but these places do feed down through the groups so people do sometimes get an earlier start date than expected.
The course takes 4-6 hours per day, depending on the group, with an average of 5 hours.
There is an Integration Day between Day 2 and 3 where you don’t come to course and you practise what you have learnt so far.
All scheduled courses are in Mission Bay, Auckland, unless stated otherwise.

‘The Switch’ is an amazing course that incorporates the most up-to-date scientific research and insight to create an extremely exciting and powerful life changing tool. With Mel being such a wonderfully inspirational teacher, ‘The Switch’ has created really powerful and permanent positive change in my life. Whilst previous courses were very helpful, I found that ‘The Switch’ finally and fully remedied the issues that had not been previously resolved in a really convincing and permanent manner. Thank you Mel and thank you The Switch, Wow!

Frequently Asked Questions
There are three training days in ‘The Switch’, each about 5-6 hours long, plus an integration day between Day 2 and 3 for you to review and practise everything you’ve learnt so far at home or work. While 5-6 hours may seem daunting to you, my experience is that chronic illness sufferers not only manage this, but significantly improve their energy and health throughout each day of the course.
‘The Switch’ package costs $1495 ($1300+GST), which includes an ebook for course preparation, pre-course coaching call, three training days in a group of 8 people, course manual, snacks, email support chain for one year and four phone call follow-ups over six months. Additional support sessions are available for $140/hour if required. Most people get all they need from ‘The Switch’ package.
‘The Switch’ is held in Mission Bay, Auckland twice per month, plus other main NZ cities about once per year each. There are many local accommodation options for out-of-towners, who report that they enjoyed being away from their regular environment while they focus on the course. These accommodation options are walking distance from the course, cafes, beaches and a supermarket. My local hosts look after clients very well. If clients require wheelchair access at the venue, this can be arranged.
Is ‘The Switch’ religious?
‘The Switch’ is purposefully neither for nor against any religion, so that it is accessible to all people. It has been attended by Christians, atheists, New Agers and other religious persuasions. All have reported comfort that the programme was in alignment with their beliefs. There is a small amount of visualisation during ‘The Switch’ and Christians have reported really enjoying this process and feeling that it was not in any way against their beliefs around avoiding hypnosis.
Teenagers have participated in ‘The Switch’ and absolutely loved it! It has a lot of games and fully-illustrated slides with cartoon characters, which really appeal to the younger audience. I would expect that children as young as 8-10 years (depending on maturity and confidence) would do well with this course. I love having young people in a group because they usually get well faster than adults, and inspire adults about how rapid change really is possible when you don’t overthink it.
Am I too old?
People in their 70s have done ‘The Switch’ and achieved great results. I have found that as long as clients have the cognitive skills and memory to learn the new material presented in the course, they can make fantastic changes. This, of course, is a case-by-case situation.
How does ‘The Switch’ work?
‘The Switch’ works on many levels.
Firstly, it helps you to switch off your stress response so that your body can start healing naturally. Here is a movie from one of my conference presentations about how chronic stress affects your health and why it is so important to learn where the ‘off’ switch is.
Secondly, ‘The Switch’ helps you to resolve deeper emotional issues that may have caused your illness in the first place. Clearing these deeper emotions allows for a much bigger and longer-lasting healing effect. I have developed a method (The Deep Switch) for people to identify what these deeper emotions are, what caused them, and to release them thoroughly without having to re-experience the trauma or share big secrets with the group.
Here is an excerpt from a fantastic film called “what the bleep do we know?” which explains scientifically what emotions are and how our brain wiring becomes affected by bad experiences:
Thirdly, ‘The Switch’ has a broad reach effect by examining many different areas of your life and helping you to make lifestyle changes to enhance your wellbeing. This is all based on the latest research into the science of wellbeing, which has shown key areas that people need to address in order to have truly sustainable good health.
